    Checkout Moyer Marine for all things A4. It’s a good gas engine. If you want to go diesel, look at the Beta, they have Dropins just for A4 replacements.

    Don't let the ditch scare you. It is a very nice cruise. With your draft you can make it on almost any tide. Just don't do it in the last couple hours before a minus tide. The last time I came through was after a -3 tide, I came through LaConner right at the 0 tide level. It was perfect for calibrating my depth sounder with my 6 foot draft, I dragged a little in several places, the worst was dead center between the last pair of red and green bouys at the south end of the channel where I slowed to 4 knots from 6.5 before pushing through.
    On the other hand some of the worst water I've been in was when I went around the outside of Fidalgo Island heading for Kingston. It was dead calm, but there seemed to be 4 foot wind waves coming from both the North and SouthWest, plus a swell from the West. Then it got even worse where the current from the Straights split to go south into Admiralty Inlet & north to Bellingham. Then the wind came up, and with a following tide and sea, I had a great 15knot sail all the way down Admiralty Inlet.

    @jlp0217 the waves only seem to be coming from 3 directions. That’s cause they are all confused.

    Gig Harbor can be made in 2 long days or 3 comfortable days. Both routes are interesting in their own way. With the ditch just choose a tidal time that is positive or neutral. Negative tide levels might find you waiting for the rise. Stick to the center of the channel and all will be fine.
    The outer Juan D’Fuca route can be a lake or exciting. Great places along the way to stop.

    It’s going to be fun.

    Hi all..finally got to the boat again. The mission was to LEDize the running, steaming and anchor light. I bet you can all guess which one is causing the head a ache. No power to anchor light!!! Power into the switch at panel. Ideas? Was up there..nothing at the socket.

    Trace the wire from the panel you state has power to the mast. Looking for frayed or possible short.
    Wire should go to ground near panel. Check the ground is not corroded.

    Check again after dark, someone may have put a dusk to dawn switch in the circuit somewhere.

    Solved! Found an unpowered wire at box! Pretty new amp sipping LEDs all around now. Also found the holding tank...picked up spinnaler pole from PO, checked anchor...line is tiiired! Chipped off the asbestos/resin sealant in bilge and sanded some for glassing.

    Spent the night on the boat..boy did it blow and rain!

    Next question..when i picked up spinny pole..there was a shorter pole as well with a pulley on one end..maybe 3-4ft long...the other end has the typical pole c clamp deal. PO's wife wasnt sure if it went to the newport but thought it matched the spinnaker pole well amd had me take it. You guys know this mini pole?

    How Long? Does it collapse?
    Could be an adjustable whisker pole. Used to hold jib out - extended to go downwind wing on wing...

    Super beefy..about 4ft long...looks just like a short spinny pole but one end has a pully instead of the clip. Not collapsable...seems short to hold a sail out.
